Eco-Friendly Furniture for Your Home:
Why Sleeping on Castor Oil Beans is Good for You
When it comes to spending top dollar it’s been said to splurge on your shoes and your bed because you spend the most time in them. Choosing furniture for your home is a difficult decision and consumers are looking at more than just price, but also for ways to give back to Mother Nature by choosing green and eco-friendly furniture for their homes.
When choosing furniture for rooms it’s common and important to focus on bedroom furniture first. Because a great night sleep is important to your health, happiness and quality of life, choosing the perfect sleeping products, especially mattresses, goes beyond price and comfort.
But don’t think you have to sacrifice comfort when choosing a mattress, especially an eco-friendly, naturally made mattress. You can save the planet and still get a good night’s sleep. Many eco-friendly mattresses now feature Eco-Foam, a natural material spun from the oil of the castor bean and topped with a layer of Organic Talalay Latex. Eco-foam provides the same comfort as tempur-type memory foam mattresses, but is not toxic and does not harm the environment. The castor oil is harvested from a renewable source, castor seeds and processed with a low carbon footprint. Creating this mattress omits less carbon, uses 100% plant material and uses its by-product for cattle feed.
Eco-friendly mattresses are not only healthy for the environment, but they’re good for you and your household too. They are naturally hypoallergenic, odor free, antimicrobial, antifungal and dust mite resistant. Furthermore, the mattress offers an extra advantage of distributing weight evenly so it absorbs any transfer of motion, thereby allowing for pressure point relief (it dramatically diminishes tossing and turning too). It’s comfortable, good for the environment and good for you.
Although it may seem that your options are limited in finding eco-friendly furniture that fits your lifestyle and space, more and more furniture manufacturers are becoming aware of environmentally friendly processes and are now offering a wider variety of furniture that’s easy on the earth. By purchasing eco-friendly furniture and mattresses, like those made from castor oil you are benefitting yourself and the environment. And the next time someone asks you why you look so healthy and well rested you can tell them it’s all thanks to castor oil!
